Free nursery education plan receives a qualified welcome
Saturday 9th March 2013, 4:00PM GMT.
FREE pre-school education for children aged three to five is long overdue, Guernseymums.gg co-founder Milly Dudley-Owen has said.
After it was revealed the Education Department would propose limited free pre-school education later in the year, parents, grandparents and toddler groups greeted the news enthusiastically.
Ms Dudley-Owen said the group had been waiting for the news for a long time.
‘Since we set up Guernseymums.gg four years ago, we have been talking about this. We are very keen to see it implemented and we are behind other jurisdictions in this matter.
‘Guernsey seems to have a bad habit of lagging behind in good legislation.’
